Hey now, I've been using M1 for OS X for a good year at least I'd say, maybe more. One day I was doing a search for video game emulators, and bingo, there it was.


Man this sucks though. I can't find Virtua Fighter and Daytona USA anywhere :-(

Wow, I didn't even think Zwei was that hard to come by. I own a copy of the NTSC-U/C version, and it came with my Saturn when I got it. Absolutely beautiful game, any idea how they did the water in Stage 4? Anyway, if you're using an emu and don't have to worry about region troubles, Ice, you might as well get one of the NTSC versions since my guess is they're more available and better.

Usually the price/availability bitching is about PD Saga, heh.

No matter how many people I introduce to the miracle that is M1, there are always people who haven't heard of it. What worries me is how close to home some of the people are-- like on the MAME board and the M1 board... places where it's had plenty of advertising!

Yeah, Saga is definitely much more rare (at least in NTSC-U/C form) than Zwei. Leave it to Sega US to screw up the Saturn's last triumph.

OT: Sega Ages VF2 (on the PS2) includes both the original and 2.1 versions and you can select original or Saturn music. Also, there's a new Last DC Game Ever coming out in Japan shortly...Chaos Field, a vertical shooter (natch) ported from Naomi (even more natch).

Going with what Lillymon said above, the name of the Virtua Fighter romset changed from vf.zip to vf1.zip. This means that it won't show up in the M1 menu. Same with Virtua Racing (vrracin.zip to vr.zip). I've already brought this up to Richard at Emuscene, but just thought I'd mention it to people that don't know.

On real OSes (and I'm fairly certain OSX qualifies) you can just alias the ROMs.

vf1 is probably going to go back to vf if someone manages to gather the energy.

The Mac port of M1 does support aliases, yes.

Nah, I've tried that. I tried renaming the alias of vf1.zip to vf.zip but it still doesn't appear in the M1 window.

You've done something wrong. It works.
